One last comment regarding the schools and the library being seperate from the city and the city's tax dollars. If that is true why do I always see the Chicago Heights police acting as security guards in the library? For that matter, why do see them acting as security at Ultra Foods?

i am new to this media outlet. However I would like to ask the Mayor when is he going to do all the things he claimed he was going to do before being elected. You put on a good show mayor while running for office. Even the officials you had on your ticket. I can never speak with my alderperson. When are you people going to stop playing all this pussy politics?
